PDF support for gnuPlot

I am in the process of installing gnuplot-4.6.6 on my Linux system and am unsure as to which PDF library is best for use with this version (or for that matter any version) of gnuplot. I would be great full to anyone with experience on this matter who would provide comments, opinions, and suggestions on which PDF library they believe is best suited for use with gnuplot-4.6.6.

Maybe libcairo2?
Cairo exports a stateful rendering API similar in spirit to the path construction, text, and
painting operators of PostScript, (with the significant addition of translucence in the imaging
model). When complete, the API is intended to support the complete imaging model of PDF 1.4.
From the gnuplot 4.6 manual
The pdfcairo terminal device generates output in pdf. The actual drawing is done via cairo, a 2D graphics
library, and pango, a library for laying out and rendering text.
